Aleppo is a good example of how TV influences our policy. 
A century ago, or even half that, these atrocities existed but now they are in our living room. This triggers our natural wish to provide assistance.

The current feckless administration supported the humanitarian convoy filled with food and medical assistance for the 250,000 starving Syrians — but the convoy was attacked and destroyed, probably by Russians.

When there is a “ceasefire” the fire does not cease, and the corridors designated for the civilians to leave the besieged city are under sniper fire so no civilians can flee. Of course the US could run a convoy of supplies to the city, and challenge anyone to stop them, with US air power overhead, but this wussified administration would never consider doing that.

Will a Trump administration undertake it?
